what do I write? Fiction: magical realism and absurdism as seen in my first book: The King of FU. Non-fiction: relationships, addiction, sex, travel, politics, Russian culture and anything that pays in money or laughs (mostly).

why do I write? Because cats can’t. Or some such other pretentious nonsense I’ll come up with later.
